Opinion by Richard Baird Posted 18 April 2018
A continually updated collection of business cards designed as part of a broader graphic identity programme for architects, architectural studios, events and specialist retailers, reviewed and published on BP&O. Between them, these typically explore architectural enduring considerations and express these graphically and/or materially.
This post moves between a simple use of type and arrangement to those employing dyed boards and print finishes to call to mind architectural materials, processes and principles. Light and shade, the framing of space and a play with light and shade are recurring motifs, yet are weaved together, alongside other assets, to create a distinctive identity. Occasionally this breakaway with an unusual and unexpected use of colour, serving to differentiate and emote. Check out plenty more at BP&O – Collections or subscribe to the series here.
